#1. He's noted to be uncontrollably impulsive, but he's so effective they keep him around anyway.

example, initiated by someone planting Louis's pills on an attacker. The resulting beatdown ends with one of them lodged in the dirt, two of them smacked aside, and a hole punched through the final unlucky sap.

DeathFromAbove: Gravity Cat
%%* DestinationDefenestration
Cat's typical reaction to being unamused is to fly around farting out explosives, or just plain farting.
* DecompositeCharacter: Dr. Hax used to be the same character as PC in the series' frequent riffs on the Mac vs PC commercials, and could be assumed to be Dr. Breen himself. However, as the series went on and Bo Schitt began fleshing out the framing device of the series, the three were separated into distinct individuals, with Dr. Hax being an avatar of Breen's control over City 17 meant to keep {{RealityWarper}}s in check, and PC being an isolated character from either of them.
* DestinationDefenestration: Happens to things and people alarmingly often.



%%* FlawedPrototype: #1.

%%* * FlawedPrototype: #1.
%%* FreezeFrameBonus
#1 was the first Combine based on a human, and the first and only attempt at a wholly artificial Combine agent as opposed to a converted human. He ended up being stronger and faster than other soldiers, but was easily distracted and acts on impulse.
* FreezeFrameBonus: A frequent source of the visual component to the show's comedy.

* MistakenForMasturbating: In Episode 9, the Heavy gets so annoyed by Max's endless banter during their poker game that he presses the "arm" button underneath the table, which doesn't work at first so Heavy continues to mash it. From Max's perspective at the opposite side of the table, [[CaptainObvious it looks like... well, this trope.]]

* OncePerEpisode: The series usually has at least one obligatory ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' skit per episode. Episode 11 at first seems to avert this, but the credits at the end are suddenly interrupted by a StylisticSuck skit featuring a Heavy with a weird expression blinking repeatedly at the camera, before a Sandvich hits him in the face and he starts sliding in circles face-down on the ground.

* ArtEvolution: The author has made increasingly better use of Garry's Mod throughout the series, and it definitely shows. Compare the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2eUUHkpvQA first episode]], which has the [[SpecialEffectsFailure HUD and death messages showing]], to the latest, which not only has those addressed, but also features stop-motion style lip movement ''with other stuff going on in real time'', a major feat when it comes to a Gmod video. His latest works successfully blend mod-assisted ragdoll animation with good old-fashioned physgun puppetry and slapstick.
